  1. Select the users/groups from the list of users/groups in the Accountable Entities pane.
  2. Click Edit Properties.
    The Edit Properties dialog displays.
  3. Verify the list of users/groups and modify or set the following for the users/groups:
    1. Hard quota, which raises an alarm when the limit is reached and prevents further writes.
    2. Advisory quota, which raises an alarm when the threshold is reached, but does not prevent further writes.
    Note: Both, advisory and hard, quotas can be expressed in megabytes (MB), which is the default, gigabytes (GB), or terabytes (TB).
  4. Click Save Changes for the changes to take effect.
